The 'Real Star' shines again after a long gap - only, how brightly is the question. You can't really expect anything drastically new from actors known for their 'powerful dialogues', can you? All you can hope for is that the story be a little more plausible and that the 'hero' who bashes up fifty baddies at least appears like he can bash up five of them in reality. Thankfully, Srihari at least looks the part.

The movie begins with an introduction to the biggest baddie of all - 'Lal Darwaza Pandu'. Though Dhanvi (Srihari) witnesses a crime, he refuses to testify. You get the sneaky suspicion that either this lion will roar later spurred on by a direct injustice to him or that there is a flashback (that most abused cliché) to tell us how he was declawed.

Anyway, he gets married quite soon to the Satya (Sanghavi). Songs follow. Soon, she gets pinched at theaters and slapped by a local goon and our man doesn't flinch. Flashback, definitely flashback, you guess. When the next-door neighbour's wife is kidnapped, Satya desperately pleads with her husband to rescue her and even prepares to walk out on her cowardly man - still nothing. Dhanvi's carefully sarcastic enunciation of dialogues and his mother's constant tear-filled distant looks confirm that sneaky suspicion. And yes, you get it - it's flashback time!

Dhanvi is a qualified but unemployed young (if you can call 30 that) man with a wild and uncontrollable temper. What's new? As expected, he has a lot to say about the job rigmarole that works on reservations and recommendations. His father is fed up with his rowdy behavior but his admonitions to Dhanvi are largely wasted on our man. He still gets into trouble, and one or two such encounters cross his path with the posh and uppity Satya.

She is, of course, floored, and we know where that storyline leads. Eventually Dhanvi's father gets beaten up by goondas, and after suffering many more such humiliations, he commits suicide. His parting advice to his son is to mind his own business and not go around trying to solve the problems of the general public.

End of flashback. Now, Dhanvi's mother pleads with him to forget all that, get his own wife back and rescue his neighbour's. As expected, it's now return-of-the-dragon time, 'hero' bashes up about fifty 'villains', and, in a slightly different-from-usual climax, lambasts the general ills of society. Nothing new there, though.

Needless to say, this is a total Srihari movie. But I find more conviction and credibility in his acting and dialogue delivery as compared to that of Rajasekhar, Sai Kumar, Vijaykant or any other of those 'social reformer' actors. You tend to connect with him more because he doesn't have any of their put-on mannerisms. The last thing we need is another one of those.

Every one else has only itsy-bitsy parts to play. The lesser said about the music and dance, the better. This is quite obviously a social movie with a realistic message for everybody - right from job interviewers to the police (of course!) and the general public. As long as you take the movie at face value and don't try hard to find loopholes and things to laugh at, it's worth a watch.
